I am really not sure what kind of wood this is, but it looked almost dark purple (not purple heart) to brown prior to finish. The finish really darkened it and deepened the grain. Even though this particular blank came with my bag of five kits (and four other wooden blanks), I think I this wood is the same as what I got laying around from some guitar making (not by me) scraps. If so, I got a lot of this stuff.

I just completed another pen from the same series of 5. This one is maple and I actually like it better. I will post pictures of it tomorrow. Too late and I got to sleep (and dream of turning).
